The International Primary Curriculum at Park Hill Junior School
We are introduced the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) at Park Hill Junior School in September 2014. The IPC is a curriculum used in over 1,000 schools in 65 countries around the world. The goal of the IPC is for children to focus on a combination of academic, personal and international learning. At Park Hill Junior School we want our children to enjoy their learning; develop enquiring minds, develop the personal qualities they need to be good citizens of the world, and develop a sense of their own nationality and culture, at the same time developing a profound respect for the nationalities and cultures of others. Most of all, we want our children to develop all the skills they will need in order to confidently face the world of tomorrow.
Many subjects are taught through cross-year topics and some topics involve the whole of a key stage.
Each term we will provide parents with a curriculum overview of the topics to be covered in their child’s class. Parents may then wish to talk about these topics at home with their child, or perhaps arrange a family outing to increase awareness and understanding of a subject. Copies of these overviews will be found each term on the newsletters pages of this website.
